Norman Baker: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what car has been made available to the Leader of the Opposition; how many hours a day a chauffeur is available to him; what the monthly cost of this provision was in each of the last 12 months; and how much of that cost was accounted for by (a) the running costs of the vehicle, (b) the costs of the chauffeur and (c) all other costs. 
Jim Fitzpatrick: The Government Car and Despatch Agency (GCDA) provides a driver to the Leader of the Official Opposition to support him in carrying out his official duties.

The current average monthly contracted cost for providing this service is £4,027 (excl. VAT).
The GCDA does not currently provide a car to the Leader of the Official Opposition. His car is provided [and paid for] by the Conservative Party. A contribution is provided by Government towards the cost of fuel.

There are currently 80 sites across the Department, its executive agencies and subsidiaries, 74 of which have been identified for closure. To clarify the exact date on which each of these sites was published and to clarify whether information has been published recently on each of these sites, would require dialogue with each website owner and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
